What makes you feel smart? Peggy Monahan talks Design Lab

An interview with Peggy Monahan, Exhibits Projects Creative Director at NYSCI about Design Lab.

Design Lab taps into people’s natural tendency to be inventive and resourceful in finding solutions to basic engineering and design challenges.

Design Lab consists of five visually and thematically distinct activity areas that evoke a sense of childlike playfulness and imagination. The activities encourage visitors to be creative while experimenting with structures, circuits, simple materials and more.

In this interview, Peggy talks about creating deeply interactive social exhibits that involve visitors of all ages working together for extended periods.
